Politicians lie, soldiers don't.

News & Politics

"Amidst the noise over issues that mean little, if anything, in comparison to Iraq, nobody seems to be asking this: Why are Americans no longer inspired to serve in the armed forces?" writes Jeffrey Feldman. "The answer is disarmingly simple: politicians lie, soldiers don't. That's the long and short of it. In the past few months, the truth that soldiers speak upon returning from Iraq has started to outpace the lies that policians tell in their attempts to sell the war to the American people. And that impact will continue to be felt the longer we keep our soldiers in Iraq." (Frameshop)
